I sometimes become self sufficient in egg boxes, that is as exciting as it gets normally

Re: Anyone growing Satsumas?

I wonder if you could use the satsuma trees from seed as a rootstock and graft other citrus onto it, you could look for scions from other people that way for thornless fruit maybe

Re: alcoholic fruit flies

that is a great tip, they were born in cider vinegar and the other day, in the absence of hard liquor, they took to sitting on my vinegar jug, I may have to make this to get rid of the little drunken feckers once and for all, a great deal of them drowned in some rather nice new world Merlot, the dre...

Re: Peanuts

I grew a tiger nut by accident, it must have come out of the bird feeder and I told the Wizard not to mow near it, but he forgot and chopped its head off, maybe it will come back. I love tiger nuts

alcoholic fruit flies

I seem to have created a colony of alcohol fuelled fruit flies in my house. A few weeks ago, I put some apple pulp in a basin with a plate on top which I intended putting in my lidded bucket to make cider vinegar. Being me, I put the bowl on top of the washing machine and forgot all about it, that i...

Roses from cuttings

I have grown some roses from cuttings. I thought I had taken a cutting of a yellow climbing rose, but it seems to be a little pink rose, another one is thornless and pink and I was sure it was off a white thornless rose. I have not been able to find much about this on the web, some people saying it ...
